TSN to carry TNA Impact
By JASON CLEVETT -- SLAM! Wrestling

Good news for Canadian fans of TNA. As of November 1st, TSN will be carrying the weekly Impact broadcast from Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.

The 1 hour weekly show began broadcasting in the US on Friday's at 3pm EST on Fox Sportsnet on June 4th. With the end of the weekly Pay Per View concept on September 8th, Canadian fans were left in the cold to get a dose of the show.

This isn't the first time that a rival wrestling promotion has aired on TSN, which carries WWE RAW. WCW Nitro aired on the station from 1997 to 2001 before it folded. TSN's sister station ESPN Classics Canada currently airs old episodes from the TNA PPV broadcasts on Wednesday Nights.

The show will begin broadcasting just in time to hype the November 7th "Victory Road" pay per view.
